Brewed in a more limited quantity, each of our small batch series beers have a distinctive ingredient that sets them apart to create a bold and unique flavor.
BROTHER ADAM'S HONEY BRAGGET
Our bragget is named for Brother Adams, a monk from Buckfast Abbey who is credited with saving the bee industry. Braggets were virtually extinct as a style when we decided to try out our recipe. This type of ale was traditionally brewed in Wales where honey was used to increase the fermentable sugars. Our Brother Adam's has a warm, rich body coupled with a delicate tawny honey profile, creating an incredibly complex beer. We age our bragget for six months, but you can continue to age this high gravity beer for years to come.BEER ADVOCATE »
Scotland's rugged soils are not conducive to the cultivation of hops that grow readily in England, so during times of political strife Scotland's southern neighbor would deprive Scottish brewers of their hops. The resourceful Scot turned to his native heather as a flavoring for his ales. Heather grows wild in the rockbound highlands and when added to the beer yields a silky aromatic result. Our Scottish Ale is brewed with a large amount of both malted barley and heather producing a rich-bodied ale with a sweet finish true to the style.BEER ADVOCATE »
Ellen's Coffee Stout
This limited edition stout is brewed with fresh roasted coffee from our local roaster, Crooked Porch Coffee of Bar Harbor, Maine, and milk sugar in addition to barley malts. Adding a touch of natural Madagascar vanilla yields a touch of gentle sweetness and creaminess to the brew.BEER ADVOCATE »
04609 Double IPA
04609 is brewed to celebrate the beer community in Maine and on Mount Desert Island. Part of the proceeds of 04609 sales will help fund a local pilot hop project. Our goal is to encourage local farmers to cultivate Maine hops and promote high standards of sustainability, both economic and agricultural.
After 25 years of brewing, we feel strongly about the importance of helping small businesses to flourish. With this multi-year project, we hope to both shepherd the production of local hops, and create a beer which sustains the community that enjoys it.BEER ADVOCATE »
